Thus, if more in number of images are picked, he/she gets to accumulate points as well every month.
By the 3rd week of every month, the 10 top images picked with scores and the accumulated scoring placing will be announced on the website. To earn more points, a member has to be active and constantly post ‘winning’ images every month, to be picked and to accumulate as much points as possible to be placed and ‘win’ any of the 10 prizes at the end of December 2011.
